This afternoon Shane Kimbrough took part in an in-flight educational event with a public school system in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Footage of this event will be shown on both NASA-TVs at 6pm CST, and on NASA-TV1 at 10pm CST.

JAXA's Kounotori HTV-6 resupply ship has served its purpose and ISS personnel are in the process of disconnected it from station systems. During the nighttime hours, ground controllers will use the Canadarm2 to separate the HTV-6 from the Harmony module. At 9am CST the Highland Road Park Observatory will be open to watch the departure of the HTV-6. The release is scheduled for 9:30am CST. Patrons are welcome to stop by and watch the live broadcast! Anyone who can't make it out the HRPO can see it on either NASA-TV.

At 11:30pm CST on both NASA-TVs coverage begins of the launch of the Progress 66 cargo craft. Launch is schedule for 11:58pm.

But the CRS-10 from SpaceX launched first so it's getting to the ISS first! Coverage of the rendezvous and capture of CRS-10 begins at 3:30am CST tomorrow on both NASA-TVs; grapple by Thomas Pesquet and Shane Kimbrough is scheduled at 5am. The coverage of CRS-10's installation begins at 7:30am.

Both spacecraft will have several thousand kilograms of supplies on board. Progress 66 will dock on Friday.
